Ta daahh.. here it is, my finished doll quilt.

I love the backing fabric. It reminds me to my trip to Paducah last year.

I've made these little quilts with the tiniest little squares I cut from my scraps. It has been a lot of fun playing with these squares.

Me between my quilts.

This picture of me was taken by one of my students today,
while I taught the “Sterrenslag” class at the shop.

Thank you Mar! You took a funny picture!

A rainy day

I save my smallest leftovers in a tin. Squares from 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm. I sew them together randomly into four patches (or nine patches), as a leader and ender project. When my tin is full with little blocks I sew them into a mini quilt or this time into bigger blocks.

I sewed these blocks together a year ago. Yesterday was a rainy day, a perfect sewing day. I just had to hear my featherweight humming, a very happy sound. I thought I would sew these blocks into a quilt.

Today I basted it. I kept this quilt simple. It will come alive with quilting. I will bind it with a nice brown. It's just a nice doll quilt.
